For background information on the catalogue, how to use it and its structure, please see the guideline. In particular, the guideline covers the application of the delineation criteria, the definition of a sales unit, and details about transport packaging. There is also a description of how to deal with cases that are not set out in the catalogue. The explanations are accompanied by clear examples; the guideline also contains a section on frequently asked questions and a glossary. The guideline is part of the administrative regulation. Neither the abbreviated nor the full-length version of the catalogue should be used in isolation, but always together with the guideline.
